Guess who is still #1 in receiving ypg, and #2 in overall receiving yards? BTW... the guy that is #1 in total yards has played 9 games compared to JB's 7 games.

Probably not. But they are a little down on our little team for the wrong reasons. Here is their writeup from the Bowl Projections article.

Holiday Bowl - Oklahoma St. Cowboys (9-3) v. Stanford Cardinal

It's not that I don't like Oklahoma State. It's just that it's hard to take their 7-1 record seriously when they've played an easier schedule than Utah thus far. Wins over Texas Tech and A&M don't mean what they once did. I think OSU drops two more games this year, to Baylor and Oklahoma. 9-3 earns them a trip to San Diego against the 3rd pick from the Pac-10.

While I wouldn't argue that Oklahoma State has played world beaters, Sagarin thinks we have played the 51st most difficult schedule thus far, which is at least enough of a schedule to know if the team is decent. When I look at strength of schedule, I find that the easiest way to decide if a teams record is a good indicator of how good they really are is to count the number of teams that would have a better record if they played the same schedule. In the case of Oklahoma State, I would say that Nebraska, OU, and Missouri could be 7-1 and a handful of other BCS teams could be 7-1, so at most maybe 20 teams could be 7-1 with this schedule IMO. That is enough to say Oklahoma State is a good team. But really what I am saying is that I am tired of the "Is Oklahoma State for real?" question.
